Quotes of the day... 8/19/14

Sometimes, (as often as humanly possible), 
we have to allow a higher power, 
(call it what you want), orchestrate, 
because we are only privy 
to a miniscule amount of information. 

Feelings come and go
like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.
     ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Just pausing for 2 or 3 breaths
is a great way to stay present.
This is a work in progress,
a process of uncovering our
natural openness, uncovering
our natural intelligence and warmth. 
     ~ Pema Chodron

Secrets to energize life...

Own less material stuff
     makes us feel lighter

Spend time alone
     increases awareness

Be open minded
     do we really think our opinions are right for all?

Let go of what is weighing us down
     again, lighten the load

Believe in something – faith gives us power
     reduces fear

Be good to your body
     our desires need a vehicle

Experience nature
     free energy

We are what we think
     how do our thoughts make us feel

React less, observe more
     reaction blocks, observation allows

Infinite Possibilities!

Even though we are all on different paths
and we want different things,
we can all have what we want
even if it appears to be conflicting.
Life has the resources and is clever enough 
to orchestrate a scenario
that allows everyone to win.
It's great fun to watch!
Our job is to believe in infinite possibilities.

~concept, Abraham/Hicks

What we focus on can change the world.

We cannot focus upon the weaknesses of one another 
and evoke strengths. 
We cannot focus upon the things 
that we think they are doing wrong, 
and evoke things that will make us feel better. 
We've got to beat the drum 
that makes us feel good. 
And when we do, 
we'll be a strong signal of influence 
that will help them to reconnect 
with who they really are.

~adapted, Abraham/Hicks

Beautiful Surprises ~ Stephen Russell, The Barefoot Doctor

"I'm finding the more I stretch myself 
by rising above my traditional preferences for this over that 
and just let myself roll with whatever destiny throws in my path 
(I was going to say 'face' but that'd be a bit brutal), 
always trusting that whatever it is will be enriching, 
the more exciting and rewarding my experience becomes.

Those little moments of fear of the unfamiliar – 
if I don't succumb or try and mask or change them 
but just surrender to feeling a bit strange - 
the situation swiftly yields up an unexpected prize.

That way, wherever I go, whomever I'm with, whatever the action, 
I'm feeling blessed to be alive 
and graced by beautiful surprises at every turn."

Peace between countries must rest on the

     ~ Indira Gandhi 

Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits 
of good put together that overwhelm the world.
     ~ Desmond Tutu

One way to reawaken your sensitivity is to imagine 
that you’re seeing everything through someone else’s eyes.
     ~ Doreen Virtue

Michael Moore on the passing of Robin Williams

"The night I first met Robin Williams, part of our encounter was caught on camera. When he saw me he immediately went into his impersonation of "Carlton Heston's toupee," among other things. He riffed off the top of his head for what seemed like 3 or 4 minutes, a stream of consciousness rant, as he reviewed each of my works. To this day I still don't believe a human could think that fast, recall that much, and be that funny, nonstop, no script, a mile a minute. 

I don't know where he came from (he claimed it was Detroit), but I'm sure glad he was here. He still is. And so are the rest of you who are struggling with your demons. Know that you are loved and that I, for one, need you to stick around. I can't do this without you."
